    Has nice optional 2nd pick up. Set up is sweet, nice low action, nice flatwounds on it, sounds superb, virtually mint, new condition other than a very slight minor normal string wear on the fretboard. 34' scale, unlined, black color and looks killer.
    Very easy to get any range of tone and then some. I have been culling the herd so to speak, so this one is the last hopeful on the block.

    1650$+ shipping and worth........every penny.
    Extremely nice clean well set up bass, includes Modulus hard shell case.

    It's got a really good sound, the pick up mix and spacing is nice also.

    I'm more a 4 string player and this is the last bass, I have to sell to try and have a 4 string only collection. I'll detune vs use more strings.

    17mm, I think all FB's 5ers are 17 mm as a standard spacing.

    That said, I had less issues switching between my 4's which are all 19 mm and this bass, than other 5 strings. Not sure why.

    Trades:

    I'm pretty specific, 4 strings only.
    Fretless Warwicks + cash on your part are of interest.
    Some single cut 4 strings fretted might be of interest.
    Or the same Modulus FB bass fretless 4 string would be ideal.

    PM replied, still up for sale.
    May do a partial trade for a String ray EMBB etc.
    Fretless preferred.

    Does this have dots on the sides?
     
  15. Wow, unlined fretless basses are way sexier!

    Yes, most unlined do.

    Trying to think if I've seen any without, drawing a blank there.
